When we first discovered the Multi Stick from ILIA Beauty, we were absolutely floored. Imagine a clean, no-nasties stick from one of the best clean beauty brands in the world that effortlessly multitasks as a lip color, blush, and eyeshadow, is packaged in a beautifully minimal case that makes application a breeze AND is loved by none other than the queen of flawless skin, Megan Fox, herself? We knew we had to get it for you right away, but we didn't just stop there. Below, we're giving you a complete step-by-step (that includes the coveted Multi Stick) on how you can ace that dewy, luminous glow à la Megan Fox with products that are certified clean, no-nasties AND cruelty-free.
Start with a deep, nourishing cleanse courtesy the Miracle Cleanser from Herbal Essentials. This antioxidant-rich cleanser has a smooth, light feel, is packed with the goodness of Himalayan Spring Water (a Herbal Essentials staple), Sunflower Seed Oil, Lemongrass and Vitamin E and helps clear the skin of dirt, oil and impurities. The Miracle Cleanser also works to fight free radicals, slow down the skin’s aging process and renew and repair the barrier of your skin for a pristinely youthful and radiant complexion.
Hydration is key, and even more so when you want that naturally dewy, luminous glow! The Refreshing Toner from Herbal Essentials is an utterly lightweight facial toner that is infused with Cucumber Extracts to help soothe and calm the skin and naturally emollient Rose Water that helps hydrate dry, dull and dehydrated skin - perfect to prep your skin for all the product that it is going to absorb later.
Next, layer in the Supreme Skin Face Serum from Mauli. This anti-aging Ayurvedic serum is enriched with the opulent goodness of Rose, Jasmine, Sandalwood, Moringa and Argan and works almost effortlessly to help repair and reactivate the skin barrier, boost collagen production and give your skin a healthy, youthful glow.
Prep your skin with RMS Beauty’s moisturizer-primer hybrid - the ReEvolve Face Primer. This plush, radiance-boosting primer is powered with Hyaluronic Acid that floods your skin with intense hydration, Tightenyl that energizes, firms and tones the skin and Eggplant Fruit Extract that repairs and protects the skin's natural barrier. It also contains vegetable-derived Squalane, a breakthrough ingredient that cleverly balances oil production and improves the elasticity of the skin.
With skin so healthy and nourished, go easy on the makeup! Use the UnCover Up Cream Concealer from RMS Beauty only on the areas where you need it the most - to conceal and cover redness, dark spots and under-eyes. This creamy, nutrient-rich concealer also doubles as skincare and works to beautifully condition and nourish the skin as you wear it.
Create a bold, well-defined lip with the Multistick from ILIA in the shade ‘A Fine Romance’. This stunning ruby-red shade works well for all skin tones and can also be used as blush; simply dab extra pigment onto your cheeks (and wherever else you think you need it!) for a really pretty flush of color.
As the last step, press on a little (or a lot, depending on how much shine you want) of the Liquid Light Serum Highlighter from ILIA into the skin. This beautifully buildable highlighter is infused with organic and natural botanicals and enriched with Marine Actives that help to protect skin against free radicals and UV Light, Mastic that helps refine the texture of the skin and Hydrolyzed Algae that helps to control oil production. The final result? A stunning, your-skin-but-better glow.
